Report: Everton, Liverpool two of seven Premier League clubs after £70m-rated star
90Min claim Everton and Liverpool are two of seven Premier League sides trailing Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic – along with Newcastle and more.
Vlahovic, 21, has thrown himself onto the radar of Premier League clubs after scoring 21 goals in 37 Serie A games. His form has continued.
This season, he has an impressive 12 goals in just 14 games – and five efforts in seven Serbia caps. He has a contract until the summer of 2023.
Vlahovic is set to leave. Fiorentina president Rocco Commisso released a statement on Vlahovic’s future – stating he will be leaving the club soon.
Either in January, or next summer – after the striker turned down a new contract. 90Min say that seven Premier League clubs remain interested.
Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester City and Chelsea have already been linked. But the report says Everton, Liverpool and Newcastle are also interested.
Everton and Liverpool eye Vlahovic: Which club is best for £70m star?
The report states that Fiorentina are willing to sell the striker for £70million. So, which clubs can actually afford to bring Vlahovic in?
It rules Everton out, after Financial Fairplay limited them to £1.7million on signings in the summer. Clubs are likely to have to have European claims.
That rules Newcastle out, given it might be two or three years before they get to that level. Tottenham might only go for him, if Harry Kane goes.
Liverpool could do with another striker, in order for Diogo Jota to go out wide as cover for Mo Salah and Sadio Mane. Manchester City need one.
Chelsea have Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner and Kai Havertz. So, Manchester City and Liverpool need the 14-time Serbia ace most.
